Loved the tiny cottage. Location was perfect for all of our excursions around the island and Acadia. Geri was a great host and always quick to respond. Would certainly recommend to anyone coming up to the island! As previously mentioned, be prepared for a super quick shower!

Thanks, Chris! We're water conservationists to the utmost! We do have ideas about putting in a point-of-source hot water heater that would heat water on demand. Small enough for our tiny house, and would provide enough hot water for everyone. But we do worry about people just letting water run! Clean water on MDI is a premium because of over-development. I remember the days in National Parks, including the showers outside of the Acadia nat'l park campground in Otter Creek that required you to put quarters in for a quick shower! LOL. We used to double up the kids! In our little house, I can get a shower and wash my short hair with the hot water on hand. My husband has longer hair than me and is bigger; he rinses, shuts water off, soaps up, then turns water back on and rinses. That works for him. My favorite is the outdoor solar shower behind the shed. People just aren't used to it, and we all really should be more conservative with our water. (Just sayin')

This is a very cute although small house. My husband is 6'3" and I would say no one taller than that should stay there. He only had a few inches clearance in the bedroom which had the lowest ceiling and he had to duck under the divider between the kitchen and living room. Oth…

Hi Kathy, thank you for the positive review. We do try to anticipate everyone's possible needs while visiting Acadia. But we hadn't thought about the height of the ceilings before, so it's a good thing to mention for tall people. I will take note of your suggestion about a different mirror. The one in the bedroom is an antique mirror given to us by a friend who owned the Captain's house in York, Maine. So it has some sentimental value, but you're right, it's probably not great for checking your hairdo!

This was my husband and I's first Airbnb experience and it was a lovely one. Geri was helpful, communicative, and friendly from the beginning and we felt confident knowing we could contact her with any questions or concerns. We spent a beautiful week in Bar Harbor honeymooning a…

Hi Joni, Thanks for your review. I will make a special note of the "sink" actually being in the shower. We brush our teeth and wash our hands after using the toilet using that shower faucet and hot and cold water spigots. We find that it is easy enough to use because of the small space. As you probably guessed, there is not enough room in the tiny bathroom for a sink, but we didn't want to go without any place at all to wash up in, in the bathroom. And of course, I'm sure folks use the double sink in the kitchen. Sorry about the dust/spider web in the corner. The cottage gets a thorough cleaning when we open it in spring, but sometimes the spiders get in there anyway. We plan to get the renter's booklet re-written soon. Yet, there's a lot of history there and I guess that's why I don't change it out. Too bad that someone used one of the back packs and neglected to clean it out! If it's the orange one, I took it home this season to wash. It will be nice and clean! Finally, I'm glad you were comfortable enough to want to come back and I hope we'll see you one day soon. ~Geri

Mary and I had a great time here. The location was great, and we enjoyed looking at all the fun stuff that Geri has collected and displayed around the house. Cozy cottage sums it up perfectly, and it was ideal for us.

Geri's cottage is in a perfect location for short access to Bar Harbor and many great hiking and biking trail in Acadia. Communication with her was easy. The cottage was a comfortable resting place for our active days in the park.
